Diner Reviews
  • "I have severe food allergies (admitted to the hospital 2 weeks ago from swelling in my throat) and explained this to the waiter. Jackson's was VERY accommodating to my needs and very understanding of my situation. I had a great meal that they made specifically to order, meeting my requests and needs. I was very impressed!"

  • "This is a lovely little restaurant next door to PF Changs and directly opposite the Arclight theatre in El Segundo. While it's not a fancy place décor-wise, the food is very good and there's a nice assortment. I had the pork belly polenta which was excellent and the rib eye steak which was perfectly cooked. The sauces they serve with the fries are also a nice accompaniment. My son had the pepperoni flatbread pizza, which he raved about. I would definitely recommend this restaurant."

  • "Jackson's is a small restaurant with pleasing decor. It offers quick, quiet, and relatively upscale food in a convenient location. Parking is easy. It is especially fitting for dinner if you're going to a movie at ArcLight, don't want o madly rush, and will take a little time (45m+) to enjoy a nice meal."

  • "Tried one taco and because it was so GOOD, I made them my main meal and just had a salad to go along. The beat and goat cheese salad was done well. Very tasty! "

  • "We were excited to try Jackson's but the food was just not up to the price. My steak was over cooked and very tough. The side dishes were just okay."

  • "Went for an early dinner on a Monday and was pleasantly surprised to find that it was Happy Hour all night. The chili was EXCELLENT (I wouldn't typically order it but my date wanted it). The waiter had the best suggestions and was very attentive and the kitchen was quick, too."

  • "Celebrated a birthday at Jackson's. First time dining there. Dinner was very good and so was the service. Honey-Pomegranate Salmon with Raisin-Almond Couscous was delicious as well as braised short ribs and bread pudding dessert was awesome. Looking forward to going back."

  • "The filet mignon risotto with truffle oil is to die for. Shared it with a friend and we fought over the last bite. Dreaming of it since Friday. Spinach flatbread was also delicious. Cocktails were perfection in liquid form."

  • "Loved Jackson's when it was in Hermosa. So happy to find them in a new location in MB. The food will not disappoint...it's an amazing blend of flavors and prepared to perfection. Jidori Chicken, Black Cod and Lamb Sausage Flatbread made for an unforgettable dining experience. The dining room area is intimate and quiet."

  • "Our second time here and the food was again excellent! Every dish we tried had great and unique flavors. The proprietor, Scott Cooper, even came out to deliver some of the dishes and to see how we were enjoying the experience. Short ribs, miso cod, burrata salad, brussel sprouts, ahi salad were all delish! Looking forward to trying more new dishes the next time we're here!"

  • "I was gravely disappointed about the sub standard quality of service and the SHOCKING quality of food. My pasta was poorly prepared and all stuck together and tasted rather bland. My wife's well done steak was as red as a rare piece of meat through more than 50% of it. The server acted lie he was doing us a favor."
    Dined on 5/2/2014
  • "We have eaten at this restaurant and last time it was a better experience. the open windows on the patio let in flies which was very offputting. I ordered the miso cod which was very tasty but appearance was not- 4 small pieces of fish rather than 1 fillet so looked like i got served pieces trimmed from other fish."

  • "service very solid, food truly was great and thought the pricing was more than fair. Crab cake maybe best ever had, mushroom risotto was stellar, maybe not the best presentation ever, but would rather have it taste awesome than look awesome"
    Dined on 4/28/2014
  • "Their signature dish filet mignon with risotto; meat was dry. The miso cod was good and heavy on the sauce. However, the presentation was horrible & looked like it was served on a cafeteria plate. Same for the Ahi tuna, good but presentation did not meet the prices charged at this place."

  • "I organized a business lunch here. The staff was friendly and solicitous, not underfoot. I made a reservation to avoid the lunch rush on a Monday, but it wasn't necessary at all - it wasn't very busy. I had the sashimi tuna salad and it was quite tasty and plenty for lunch. There weren't too many people there, so the noise level was great for conversation. "

  • "The service is wonderful and the food and drink delightful. The outdoor patio with fireplace is charming. Really a great place for a meal on a summer night or a cold winter night or afternoon."

  • "Overall my first experience was a good one at Jackson's. I thought the best part was the food. The ambiance was comforatable, almost like a ski chalet. Our food server was well-trained and gave us all the input we asked and time to decide. Thanks!"

  • "For the first time, the patio area was very noisy which made the dining experience less enjoyable than our usual visits to Jackson's."

  • "This was the first time I dined at Jackson's. There were three distinct seating options: outside on the covered patio, inside by the bar and in the more formal side room. We picked the last choice as it was quieter and were happy. We had decided to chose this restaurant as the food was interesting and were pleased with everything we tried. The beet and goat salad was well dressed with balanced flavors, and was a large portion. The heirloom tomato and berretta salad was excellent with the treatment of the cheese making this a special dish. The lamb sausage flat bread was nicely cooked and very large (two people could have had just that for lunch). The flank steak risotto and pork belly dishes were also nice, and were smaller plates."
    Dined on 3/27/2014
  • "Three friends went to Jackson's to celebrate a friend's birthday. The service was excellent. I had a steak and it was excellent, very tender and juicy. The upside down berry pie is excellent. My only negative is the noise level of the restaurant. Background noises makes it difficult for me to hear and this restaurant has too much background noise in my opinion."

  • "The menu seemed fit for foodies but the food was not well executed. I ordered the smaller miso cod which came on a kid's plate but was still $16. It came with two kid-sized pieces of fish--they were however generous with the white rice and cucumber salad. My date ordered the braised short-ribs which were not what he expected. The bones were not attached and the meat did not have that signature silky/braised texture. It was dry rounds of meat surrounded by a lot of root veggies. We also ordered the roasted cauliflower which came in a pool of it's own water and had lost the roasted texture. The actual sauce was completely drowned out and bland and the pine nuts were left behind in the sauce so we asked for bread but it just seemed botched."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "1st time at the recently opened Jackson's probably not the best choice ambiance-wise for our X-mas eve dinner. That said and not being a foodie we found the service to be very good, attentive but not intrusive, our steaks were done just as asked for and the sides prepared very well. The feel is very casual, especially in the 'outside' area, but we wonder why it is so walled-in. There is nothing to absorb sound so it just seems loud in normal dining conditions. Considering the total experience the cost of the entrees were felt to be pricey and might be more justified in a setting like Man. Bch. near the pier or Hermosa's Pier Ave promenade. Jackson's in a very competitive market area, I wish them well and will recommend them to others."

  • "After a day at the Getty on the hill and having to deal with the 405 construction traffic, we wanted to be out of LA for dinner but closer to our home in Orange County. El Segundo area was a good landing spot for a nice dinner. Jackson's lived up to their stars others have given. We all thought the food was excellent. The Beet salad which was praised as"the best one she ever had" another had the roasted chicken which looked as beautiful as it tasted I heard, the roasted vegetables were delicious but he did mention too many tomatoes - but then again he is not a big fan of those anyhow. I really liked the Tagliatelle pasta with ricotta, peas and pancetta with fried egg which was even more interesting than the Carbonara I make at home."

  • "Booked this place as my backup plan for dinner for valentines day. Did not even realize how close it was to my house! Super cool place that was very busy, although that may be attributed to valentines day. We were seated right away thanks to that reservation and had a wonderful waitress. Kristen was very attentive all night even when I couldn't decide what to order! The food took a bit to come out..again they were very busy but Kristen kept checking in and kept us posted. That was nice. Food came out and was very good. I ordered the pepperoni flatbread pizza and my boyfriend ordered the burger. They were both very good. Loved the dipping sauces for his fries!"

  • "Chose Jackson's for Valentines Day. We were seated in the bar area which turned out to be a great place to sit. The service was friendly and fast. They have a very good wine list. We started with the Filet Mignon and Risotto appetizer which was excellent. Because the tables are close we got to see what the people around us ordered which in turn sparked nice conversations. I ordered the braised beef ribs with parsnip mashed potatoes and root vegetables and my wife ordered the glazed salmon over couscous. The chef came out to let me know that they had run out of the root vegetables and offered me the opportunity to substitute whatever I wanted. I chose the roasted corn off the cob which was excellent. We will return to try other dishes."
